NOTICE OF RECOGNITION
In celebration of the 90th Anniversary of the Lethbridge & District Music & Speech Arts Festival, the Board of Directors proudly presents the “Anniversary Video”. This video was part of the celebrations planned by the Anniversary sub-committee. While we were not able to carry out the majority of those plans, we did want to premiere the video.
The Board would like to thank Jim McNally from “The Commercial Factory” (our videographer and advisor for this project), Gloria Torrance, Ken Rogers, Sandra Brunelle (Anniversary Sub-Committee Members), and the Video participants (Jean Robin, Leroy Cranston, Kirk Muspratt, Irene Penner, and Sandra Brunelle) without whose kind participation the video would not have been possible.
It is our hope to share with you a glimpse into the proud history of the festival and the impact that it had and will continue to have on the lives of those associated with it.
Karen J Kay
Board Director and Chairperson, 90th Anniversary Sub-Committee
The Lethbridge & District Music & Speech Arts Festival Society wishes to recognize 98.1 2Day FM for their generous financial contribution. Thank you for your support of our annual festival!
In light of the rising cases of COVID-19 in Southern Alberta, the Society Board has elected to cancel our upcoming Annual General Meeting. The board will handle all AGM matters at a future monthly board meeting and report the outcomes to the membership.
March 13, 2020
The Lethbridge and District Music and Speech Arts Festival Society Board announces, with regret, the cancellation of the 2020 Festival scheduled for March 23-April 4, which includes all sessions and concerts. This is in accordance with the Alberta Government’s directive concerning COVID-19, issued on March 12th, that all large gatherings with 250 or more attendees be cancelled. Festival registrants may donate their fees to the Festival (tax receipt available) or request a full refund by contacting the General Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will celebrate our 90th (+1) anniversary next year, March 15-27, 2021. We will provide further updates via our website, social media and email as the situation unfolds. The Society Board wants to thank you for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.
